2017 Ford C-Max Energi Titanium (Tow-Ready)

Tow-ready, with Roadmaster Invisibrake supplemental brake system! Includes Blue-Ox baseplate, 6-diode (vs 4-diode) turn signal system so turn signals operate separately from brake lights (for added safety), and -- of course -- Roadmaster Invisibrake. A supplemental brake system is required when flat-towing a vehicle in almost all 50 states, and Invisibrake is the (undisputed) easiest to use.  Because the car has the Titanium trim level, it has push button start. So preparing to tow requires only pushing the button to start the engine, shifting into neutral, then pushing the button again to stop the engine -- and you're ready to go! The car has only a little under 72k miles currently and was towed just once, about 1,100 miles. The car is worth the asking price on its own, but comes at significant savings when considering the tow equipment included on the vehicle retails for about $4,000 (installed).

The car is pretty great on its own, even without the flat-towing equipment. The Titanium package includes leather upholstery, a Sony Sync3 entertainment system -- which employs Android Auto or  Apple CarPlay, and gorgeous alloy wheels, among other upgrades. My wife enjoys driving it to work because it will go about 20 miles in EV mode on a single charge, which means that much of the time she uses no gas for her commute! Also, we have it scheduled to charge overnight when electricity rates are highly discounted, so the cost of owning the car is very low. When the battery is depleted or it needs additional power, the 2.0 liter engine engages in regular hybrid mode, which gets about 39 mpg on its own. Whether EV or hybrid mode, the accelerator is amazingly responsive, which many expert reviews of this car will confirm. It has a high profile, so driver and passengers sit a little higher in the seats than a car, as in a crossover or compact SUV. It also has brand new Continental True Contact all-season radials, which is rated best in its class and is especially strong in responding to slick weather. In sum, the C-Max is a pleasure to drive and also travels very nicely when towed behind a motorhome.

We love the C-Max and are selling it only because we will be unable to make good use of the premium towing equipment since we recently sold our motorhome. Shame to see all that helpful equipment go to waste, so we hope to find someone who will enjoy using the C-Max as your tow-behind vehicle. Comes with the charger shown in the second-to-last photo (garage wall not included). Email itasca.horizon@yahoo.com or phone 319-435-1729 (call or text) for additional information.
